Title
June 9, 2016 - First M3 Case Report Symposium Set For June 24
Article

Third-year medical students at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine will host the first annual M3 Case Report Symposium on June 24, 2016, at 3 p.m. The symposium will take place on the 10th floor of USA Medical Center and all faculty, staff, residents and students are invited to attend.

The purpose of the symposium is to give third-year medical students the opportunity to present a novel, rare or meaningful case report to faculty, residents and peers in the form of a poster presentation, thereby gaining scholarly experience useful for development as a physician-in-training.

Throughout their third year, medical students interact with patients as a member of the health care team. Some of the patients encountered will have a lasting impact on students and potentially affect career and specialty choices as future physicians. “During the symposium, we will discuss the lessons learned from these patient experiences," said Grant Willis, a third-year medical student at the USA College of Medicine and co-creator of the symposium.

“The symposium will increase the amount of documented research experiences USA College of Medicine graduates perform," added Parker Mullen, another third-year medical student and co-creator of the symposium. "This keeps the USA College of Medicine in line with national standards and prepares medical to discuss unique clinical experiences in residency interviews.”

“We are excited to see the event come to fruition and hope it will be a worthwhile endeavor for participants, spectators and future USA College of Medicine students,” Willis said.
